“You seeing anyone special?” “What happened to that nice guy you were dating?” “When are you going to settle down?” “When are you going to give us some grand babies?” Women, hold onto something bolted down. We are in the Cuffing Season. If you don’t know what that is, don’t worry I’ll give you the download. The best definition I have read is this one by @chaminajjanpsych “Cuffing season refers to a specific time of year when people become extremely motivated to get "coupled up." It generally occurs from October to March. You know, the cooler months of the year. As the temperature drops, the number of couples rises.” It’s a time of year when we tend to feel more lonely about our love lives and more pressure to be partnered. I know for me I always dreaded this time of year because there a holiday in each month during this stretch that always felt like the loneliness inside me got poked and aggravated. On Halloween I felt bad about not having someone to dress up with. On Thanksgiving I felt bad about not having someone to take home to the family. On Christmas I felt bad about not having someone to exchange gifts with. On New Years Eve I felt bad about not having someone to kiss. And of course on Valentine’s Day...need I say more? It’s also a time we are getting inundated with messages from advertisers, people close to us, social media and the entertainment industry that being coupled up or “cuffed” up raises our value in some way. It’s an intense time of year that calls for much courage and resources. It’s why I placed my group program Date With Depth right smack dab in the middle of it! If you are feeling the loneliness and pressure of the Cuffing Season you have other options then just riding it out until March. What if you could tap into sisterhood and have a safe place to do some visioning and soul searching about your love life, release any leftover dating toxicity from 2019 and set the course for finding authentic, aligned and sustainable love for the coming year? Date With Depth is a 6 week course designed to help you find love without losing yourself. Explore more by clicking "Date With Depth" in the navigation bar. I invite you to give yourself this gift!
